According to French soccer website Footofeminin.fr, Camille Abily has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Sol. For the past 2 years, Camille has been playing for Olympique Lyonnais and has been voted the best French player.
The decision to leave Olympique Lyonnais was very difficult for Camille. To help her decide Camille visited the Los Angeles Sol facilities (Home Depot Center) and met the coaching / front office staff. Camille feels joining the WPS is the best decision she can make to elevate her game to the next level.
“It sure is motivating to be able to coexist. I’ll also be able to locate my level. I wanted to try this challenge abroad to see if I could compete with these partners and opponents American, Brazilian, Canadian, British, Chinese, and Japanese. Joining the Los Angeles Sol will be an adventure abroad, outside the sporting aspect, but also super interesting. I just finished my studies and it is a wonderful opportunity. I will learn a new language.”
Camille will arrive in Los Angeles February 21 a week before preseason-training camps are schedule to begin. According to Camille she will be staying in a house rented by the club with other Sol players.
